An efficient three-phase culture has been developed for plant regeneration of Leucopogon verticillatus (R. Br.) (Ericaceae formerly Epacridaceae [Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 85 (1998): 531–553]) via somatic embryogenesis as indicative of likely culture scenarios for other Ericaceae. The Ericaceae, particularly many Australian species, are often difficult to propagate by conventional forms of nursery propagation. Initiation of somatic embryos was best achieved using Gamborg’s B5 medium, pH 6, 4…

High frequency somatic embryogenesis and synthetic seed production of the endangered species Swertia chirayita
TLDR
Application of these protocols would be helpful in reducing stress in natural habitat, and in long-term storage of elite genotypes through synthetic seed production of S. chirayita.
Thidiazuron induces high frequency direct somatic embryogenesisgrowth from cotyledon culture of eurycoma longifolia
TLDR
The results indicated that the direct somatic embryogenesis obtained can be further used to develop a protocol for plantlet regeneration of E. longifolia.
High frequency somatic embryogenesis and synthetic seed production in Clitoria ternatea Linn
An efficient plant regeneration protocol has been developed from embryogenic callus derived from cotyledonary explants of Clitoria ternatea Linn., an important medicinal climber species. Optimum
Thidiazuron Induces High Frequency Direct Somatic Embryogenesis Growth from Cotyledon Culture of Eurycoma longifolia (Tidiazuron Merangsang Pertumbuhan Somatik Embriogenesis daripada Kultur Kotiledon Eurycoma longifolia)
TLDR
The results indicated that the direct somatic embryogenesis obtained can be further used to develop a protocol for plantlet regeneration of E. longifolia.
EARLY SOMATIC EMBRYOGENESIS AND SYNTHETIC SEED PREPARATION IN TAVERNIERA CUNEIFOLIA (ROTH) ARN. FOR CONSERVATION OF ROOT CULTURES
Root explants of Taverniera cuneifolia (Roth) Arn., were studied for differential responses to various growth hormones. Auxins like Indole 3-acetic acid (IAA) stimulated multiple root induction,
Morphological and Histological Evaluations of In Vitro Regeneration in Elliottia racemosa Leaf Explants Induced on Media with Thidiazuron
TLDR
Histology of explant tissues indicates that plant regeneration of Georgia plume occurs through a shoot organogenesis pathway that involves the formation of actively dividing meristematic regions originating in subepidermal cell layers that proliferate to form protuberances on the explant surface.
In vitro callus and shoot organogenesis from leaf and stem explants of Chamaedaphne calyculata.
TLDR
This study makes the first ever attempt to propose an effective micropropagation protocol for leatherleaf via indirect organogenesis using leaves and stems derived from mature plants growing in a natural stand and from plants grown in vitro as explants.
Influence of auxins in direct in vitro morphogenesis of Euphorbia nivulia, a lectinaceous medicinal plant
TLDR
Direct in vitro morphogenesis in mesophyll cells of Euphorbia nivulia Buch.-Ham in vitro was dependent on the type of auxin supplementing Murashige and Skoog medium containing benzyladenine, and somatic embryos passed through distinct stages of embryogenesis, namely globular, heart, torpedo, and early cotyledonary.
An Efficient Tissue Culture Regeneration System for Georgia Plume, Elliottia racemosa, a Threatened Georgia Endemic
TLDR
Tissue culture appears to be a promising approach for the propagation and conservation of this rare and threatened plant.
IN VITRO PLANT REGENERATION OF TURKISH SWEET BASİL (OCIMUM BASILICUM L.)
TLDR
The present study provides a reliable and reaptable in vitro plant regeneration protocol of cultivated sweet basil of Turkey and shows that shoots were successfully rooted and plantlets were transferred to pots and acclimatized well in growth room conditions.

Somatic embryogenesis and plantlet regeneration from nucellar tissue of monoembryonic mango
TLDR
High frequency somatic embryogenesis from nucellar explants was achieved in the monoembryonic mango `Arka Anmol' and Rugini olive (RO) medium followed by Gamborg's B5 (B5) was superior to the Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium for culture establishment and embryo induction.
In vitro plantlet regeneration of Ocotea catharinensis, an endangered Brazilian hardwood forest tree
A successful system of somatic embryogenesis is described for the forest tree Ocotea catharinensis Mez., which used mature zygotic embryo explants cultured on a modified Murashige and Skoog (MS)
Micropropagation of juvenile Eucalyptus regnans (Mountain ash)
TLDR
Node-derived shoot cultures of Eucalyptus regnans were established from in vitro grown seedlings on Murashige and Skoog basal medium supplemented with 0.5 mg L-1 (2 μm) zeatin and 0.3 μm napthaleneacetic acid to develop an efficient method for in vitro rooting.
Regeneration of somatic embryos and roots from quince leaves cultured on media with different macroelement composition
TLDR
Differences in embryo and root regeneration observed among macroelement combinations may be ascribable to different levels of medium nitrogen and probably to the ratio between nitrate and ammonium.
In vitro propagation of Epacris impressa (Epacridaceae) and the effects of clonal material
TLDR
The results suggest that explant materials are the main determinant of success in in vitro propagation and that they require individual optimisation of treatments to maximise shoot and root formation.
Somatic embryogenesis and callus production from cotyledon explants of Eastern black walnut
TLDR
Throughout the study, callus generally increased with increasing concentrations of both TDZ and 2,4-d, and produced the greatest callus volume and dry weight 10, 12, and 14 weeks after anthesis.
Thidiazuron: a potent cytokinin for woody plant tissue culture
Thidizuron (TDZ) is among the most active cytokinin-like substances for woody plant tissue culture. It facilitates efficient micropropagation of many recalcitrant woody species. Low concentrations
Embryogenic cell lines from somatic embryos of grape (Vitis vinifera L.)
TLDR
Somatic embryo formation occurred on leaf callus of grape, which has retained a high embryogenic activity after repeated subculture on the same medium for over two years, and has produced numerous embryos after transfer to a hormone-free medium.
Somatic embryogenesis and plant recovery from callus of 'Nabali' Olive (Olea europea L.)
TLDR
Embryo regeneration was studied by transferring the callus from EIM to embryogenesis expression medium (EEM) containing different concentrations of 2-isopentenyladenine (2iP), BA, thiadiazuron (TDZ), zeatin or kinetin, and 2iP at 10.0 μM outperformed the other growth regulators.
